How is ElevatIQ different?
for e-Commerce Brands?
Unlike other digital agencies, ElevatIQ’s expertise is not just limited to the needs of the sales and marketing departments. With the expertise in creating large-scale architecture and custom websites, ElevatIQ can ensure that you have the right eCommerce processes and tools in place from day one.
When it comes to business model transformation initiatives such as new DTC channels, buy-online-pickup-in-store, omnichannel experience, and cross-border financial and operational synergies, you need to analyze your current processes and systems comprehensively. Other agencies lack the operational perspective to enable them.
Most sales and marketing teams struggle to get the data and insights for their sales and marketing operations. Other agencies can’t speak the language of the supply chain, operations, and finance. We bridge that gap for sales and marketing executives and help them get the insights that they need to grow in the system of their choice.
Disconnected systems often provide inaccurate information that sales and marketing leaders need to plan out their territories, channels, and products. The shared datasets also need to be aligned across systems to get meaningful, accurate KPIs. ElevatIQ’s expertise with financial KPIs helps you uncover deeper eCommerce challenges.
Building a vendor-agnostic architecture requires you to draw data flows between different warehouses, channels, processes, and systems. It also requires you to identify the source of truth for each shared dataset. Finally, you need to design master data governance process flows and how you will maintain the integrity of architecture through the process and data controls. There are very few firms like ElevatIQ that have deep expertise in building enterprise architecture that scales.
Most web development agencies don’t have the operations and finance background to understand the ERP data models and create integration flows around them. In most cases, they end up overengineering the web layers, which results in significant challenges for customer experience such as inconsistent pricing experience or lead times higher than the industry. ElevatIQ can help avoid these challenges through its ERP data model expertise.
Understanding and negotiating software licenses and contracts require you to have an understanding of transaction and integration flows. Your decisions could fire back if you didn’t understand the licensing model of the underlying systems. We have dealt with the licensing of one of the largest enterprise software and understand different architectural patterns and licensing models deeply.

Our methodology starts with the assessment of your current eCommerce platforms and architecture. This step is typically followed by a phased approach starting with the lowest hanging fruits that have the highest financial returns, including any platform replacement.
Through the primary and secondary research, this assessment digs into each of your datasets, transactions, and processes to identify the core reasons for current challenges, a strategy to solve current issues, and a phased approach to execute recommendations.
This process starts with the low fidelity wireframes of all the pages that need to be developed or changed, including the sitemap. These wireframes help align user expectations in order to avoid expensive rework during the development phase.
This is an iterative process to develop all the pages and site elements compliant with the design and branding guidelines. This step also includes demo and user testing to incorporate any revisions if the needs may change after the development starts.
This phase takes a deeper dive into the phase I identified in the previous step with the highest financial reward and least disruption to the business. It continues with the deeper discovery of current processes through workshops with key users. This phase captures in-scope user stories and epics that need to be part of the design and development sprints.
This process creates high-fidelity wireframes, including expected branding elements on pages. It also helps users provide feedback on visual elements to avoid expensive rework during the development phase.
Once the site works as per user expectations, the next step is to integrate all the channels and systems that may interact with the website. This step helps in consolidating orders from multiple systems, sending the information each system needs, and making sure that data integrity is maintained across the systems.
